THURSDAY: Erik Bazinyan-Shakeel Phinn Super Middleweight Battle to Stream LIVE & Exclusively in the U.S. on ESPN+

(April 29, 2024) — Undefeated super middleweight contender Erik Bazinyan returns in the 10-round main event against Shakeel Phinn this Thursday, May 2 at Casino de Montréal in Montreal, Canada. Bazinynan, ranked in the top 10 by all four major sanctioning organizations, hopes to put himself in line for an eventual world title opportunity. 
In the eight-round lightweight co-feature, unbeaten Canadian prospect Avery Martin Duval takes on Argentina’s Ezequiel Palaversic.
Promoted by Eye of The Tiger, Bazinyan-Phinn, Duval-Palaversic, and undercard bouts will stream live and exclusively in the U.S. on ESPN+ starting at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.
Bazinyan (32-0, 23 KOs) has spent the majority of his 10-year career competing in Canada after moving from Armenia when he was 16. He debuted in the U.S. in May 2019 with a points triumph over Alan Campa and knocked out Saul Roman in three that December. Last year, he scored decision wins against Alantez Fox in February and Jose de Jesus Macias in June before dispatching Ronald Ellis in six in October. Bazinyan initiated his 2024 campaign with a third-round stoppage against Billi Godoy in January. Phinn (26-3-1, 17 KOs) looks to extend his winning streak to six and returns after stopping Rafael Sosa Pintos in one round last October. The only blemishes on his record have come against unbeaten fighters. 
Duval (10-0-1, 6 KOs), a 22-year-old prospect who turned pro in June 2019, went 4-0 with three knockouts before being held to a split draw against Esteban Hernandez Arroyo in December 2020. He avenged the draw by winning their rematch via four-round decision the following August. Duval has not fought since he stopped Andres Sanchez Ramirez via third-round TKO last June. Palaversic (8-2-1, 4 KOs) looks to bounce back from a split draw against Alexander Gustavo Dominguez in December.
